The Doctor Is In!

Hi Stampers!

Today I am going to share a card that I created using a cute Crafty Sentiments Designs stamp called Doctor Tobey.

I colored him with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink Markers on the Crafter's Companion ultra smooth white cardstock. Then I fussy cut him out and popped him onto my designer paper panel. The Designer Paper I used is from the Simple Stories 6x6 paper pack called - Awesome.  I used a Tim Holtz Idea-ology metal clip so my one panel looked like the Doctors Clip Board. We will be adding this line to our store as soon as we can :)

I made my "Band-Aid" tape using a Stampin Up! punch called Key Tag and the square punch then just cut it to size. I used very vanilla cardstock sponged with soft suede and then stamped the "dots" with Stampin Up's! Itty Bitty Backgrounds stamp with early esppresso. The heart on top is from the Stampin Up! punch - Heart to Heart. It is the smallest heart from this punch.

I handwrote the Doctor's Orders on my clip board. Here is a close-up:

When I showed my husband this he just looked at me funny - LOL! I don't think he liked my "buy new stamps" instruction - hee hee!

Here is a close up of Doctor Tobey. I tried something new with the hair. After coloring it with my Spectrum Noir Markers I went in with my Stampin Write Chocolate Chip Marker from Stampin Up! and used the very fine tip to add some hair strands to see what that looked like. I was trying to add better definition in the hair because I am not very good with doing some colors of hair with my markers yet.

I also used Stampin Up! markers to color his shirt, tie and stethoscope cord because they offer a very tip to get in itty bitty places.

At Crafty Sentiments Designs this week they are having a sketch challenge which is what I used for my layout:
